I have a MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2014) with base configuration. I have a bunch of footage off a Canon 700D which is in a H.264 codec. Now obviously, a MacBook Air does not have an external graphics card, which means that Premiere Pro does not support CUDA which supports faster encoding.
I don't have a plan of changing computers anytime soon, so I was wondering if I should transcode my footage to a different codec so that it encode faster? Is there like a ProRes for Premiere? I will be encoding into H.264 most of the time to upload to YouTube.
Any tips would be great. Thanks for your time.
